Understanding Hidden Things

I Corinthians 2:14
But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.

A man that has not received Christ cannot take in the hidden things of the Spirit of God. To him, for God to have sent His own sinless Son to take the death we deserved in order to give us life, makes no sense.

It all seems like a pile of gibberish and double-talk. He has no ability to perceive the things of the Holy Spirit because he doesn’t have the Spirit of Christ in him. Only the Holy Spirit can bring that understanding.

After we have walked in the Spirit for a long time, we tend to forget what it was like to walk in the limitations of our own mind. Sometimes we lose patience with those who are still on that dark path. Only God can remind us of that dark time.

Lord Jesus, help us to recall what it was like
to walk through life in the shadows without Your illumination,
ever searching, ever seeking, never finding,
until that glorious day You found us,
and set our feet on Your light path.

As a side note, I’ve published a new 366 day devotional book entitled Looking Deeper. It’s available in paperback and e-reader. Looking_Deeper_Cover_for_Kindle
